Jennifer Aniston has officially sidelined her beloved signature layers, debuting a sleek '90s bob at the 2024 Screen Actors Guild Awards. The Los Angeles red carpet saw the actress depart from her much-copied "Rachel" cut, trading out the style for a high-shine, chin-grazing bob with softly framing strands and a deep side part. If you're seeking a chic hair refresh for spring, this glowing blonde cut could not be more youthful.

Aniston's new cut does away with the chunky layers and heavy face-framing chops we associate with her signature Friends style, instead lending itself to the short supermodel hairstyles of the '90s. Keeping strands more or less one length, with some subtle layers around the face and light texturing in the ends, results in a timeless look that feels undeniably modern.

While the catwalk is the first place we look for '90s make-up inspiration, it's Aniston herself who defined its decade in hair. Renditions of the "Rachel" have garnered billions of views online and the style has acted as significant inspiration for numerous celebrity hair 'dos since; think Priyanka Chopra, Jodie Comer and Zendaya. The modern resurgence of Pamela Anderson up-dos, frosted eyeshadow and London grunge has served as proof that the era is as relevant for beauty as it ever was.

Aniston's elegant new bob was not the only talking point of the evening. Her healthy low glow tan and soft peach-hued make-up were also standout beauty features. Her lively coral lipstick? None other than Chanel's Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue in Light Rose.

Meanwhile, with a classic silhouette and shimmering silver texture, her timeless Celine gown has garnered mass attention. All in all, a flawless red-carpet appearance if ever there was one.
